  I was thinking about on-the-fly generation of customized lynx.cfg and
.lynxrc. Probably it would be better to write it in Perl since it seems to be 
more portable than sh.

  Of course. And in the worst case the script will be 60K big. 
  But seems there is an even better approach - why don't do all customizations
only once in the script like lynx-setup, that will ask user for something
(probably) and modify lynx.cfg and user's .lynxrc (too bad we have to do it
for each user, or provide hacks to share default .lynxrc that lynx will use
when called). What do you think about this?
